Police rescued a one-year-old baby boy who was locked inside a hot car on Shelley Beach, KwaZulu-Natal, yesterday.
Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said the boy was left inside a Toyota Tazz that was parked outside the South Coast Mall on Shelley Beach while his minder went shopping.
Police were alerted and the car windows had to be broken to rescue the boy.
Paramedics had to resuscitate the child, who was then taken to hospital.
Temperatures along the South Coast soared to 32 degrees Celsius yesterday and police officers at the scene said the temperature inside the car had reached at least 37 degrees Celsius.
Police spokesman Superintendent Zandra Hechter said the incident took place at midday.
"When police arrived on the scene all the car windows were closed, except for one which was about half a centimetre open," she said.
"The child was screaming, dehydrated and wet from perspiration," Hechter said.
While paramedics were attending to the boy, a 26-year-old woman came out of the mall and said she was the child's aunt.
"She told police that the mother was in Umthwalume near Hibberdene."
Hechter said the aunt would be arrested for child neglect. - Sapa
